Oregon Constructors excel at OR Manifest Design Challenge

Congratulations to the framebuilders who participated in the 2011 Oregon Manifest Constructors Design Challenge this weekend.  The event challenged builders to design the “Ultimate Utility Bike.”   In addition to building the “Ultimate Utility Bike” the bikes were sent out on a 50-mile field test that began in Buxton, Oregon and finished at Chris King Headquarters in NW Portland.
The honor of top design goes to three Portland, Oregon based and O.B.C.A. members.
1. Tony Pereira, Pereira Cycles of Portland, OR
2. Rob Tsunehiro, Tsunehiro Cycles of Portland, OR
3. Chris King, Cielo Cycles of Portland, OR
In addition to the top builder submissions, the University of Oregon won the best “Student Design” category.  This team was mentored by OBCA Board President, Dave Levy of Ti Cycles in Portland, OR.

Vertigo Cycles Helps Develop New Headset Solution

Press Release from Cane Creek Cycling Components:

Citing the need for a headset solution that would facilitate the use of a tapered steerer fork (1.5” to 1-1/8”) in a standard ZeroStack™ head-tube, Sean Chaney, owner of Vertigo Cycles, a custom frame builder from Portland, Oregon approached Cane Creek with a brilliant, simple headset idea.

“After hearing from David Turner and then speaking with Sean, I was so excited by the problem-solving nature of his headset solution and it’s far reaching implications for both new and old bicycles using the ZeroStack™ standard that I produced a technical drawing the same day,” says Josh Coaplen, Cane Creek Director of Research & Development. “The headset bottom is simply a 1.5” traditional with a 44mm diameter insertion sleeve that fits a frame using the ZeroStack™ standard.”

Two models, addressing different price levels, of the Sean Chaney inspired XX 44mm Traditional bottom headset assembly will be available mid-summer 2010 from Cane Creek. A high-end version will be produced at Cane Creek’s Fletcher, NC facility and will have features similar to the brand’s 110 XX headset.
